3D Printed Portable Rail Gun

    Here is an interesting project. A portable rail gun that was mostly 3D printed.

    Below is the CAD drawing. Everything in gray was 3D printed.




    The blue capacitors combined weight is 20 lbs. It looks like a Neill Blomkamp weapon from District 9.



    Here are the projectiles. The railgun is capable of firing copper plated tungsten, aluminum, carbon and teflon/plasma. Here we have copper plated tungsten armatures.





    You can check out a breakdown of the build here.


    Thanks to Bryan S. for the hat tip.
